The Season 8 premiere of The X Factor Australia saw both Adam Lambert and Iggy Azalea making their debut on the panel, joining veteran judge Guy Sebastian. One of the highlights from the episode involved Memphis James. The 27-year-old Melbourne native is a brick layer by day, and male entertainer by night. Naturally, this prompted an eager Lambert to ask for “a sample of the merchandise,” which Memphis happily obliged.
Truthfully, James could’ve been a librarian and Adam would’ve asked the same thing. The second Memphis stepped on stage, Adam was already interested, immediately telling Iggy he thought the contestant was cute.
Check out Memphis’s audition below. Sadly, his pipes aren’t nearly as impressive as his looks.
